Nicky Nome, a spinoff from "A Coach for Cinderella" and hero of this cartoon, rescues a treasure-laden pauper from the Valley of Jewels, taking him to the princess on a magic carpet, which transforms itself into a new Chevrolet. Expresses a caricatured view of Arab people, typical of many cartoons of the time.

I found this cartoon very enjoyable. It's a bit racist, but is still less racist than most current talk shows. If you can ignore the racism, you will probobly enjoy this cartoon.

Subject: Zingo! There's the jewels!
How can a boy with no jewels compete for the princess against a villian with crystal balls? With a little magic and a Chevrolet, of course! A Hummer prototype morphs into a moderne Chevrolet motorcar, the car for a man who needs to compensate.
Subject: Animated Stereotypes?? Gee what a surpise!
In the same vein as "A Coach for Cinderella', and using the same animation, this is a very beautifully animated piece about a boy trying to win a fair maiden's hand. What is stunning about this piece though, is the racist stereotypes here. What's so funny about these arab stereotypes is the ACCENTS, which sound NOTHING like arab. At least they got the wide lipped black yassuh stereotype voice right..
